Making homemade ravioli at home is so much easier than you think! Plus making them 100% vegan, and topping with homemade bolognese and ricotta? You'll want to make this ASAP!
Mix the flour and salt on a clean dry surface or in a large mixing bowl until combined and make a well in the center of the flour.
Pour the water in the well and mix the flour and water together with your hands until it forms a solid ball. Add more water/flour if needed.
Knead the dough on a well-floured surface for 10 minutes. Split the dough into four balls of dough and cover three of them with plastic wrap.
Roll out one segment at a time. Stretch the dough out until it's thin, approximately 1/16th of an inch thick. Make the pasta into long sheets, flouring between sheets.
In a food processor add your drained tofu, cream cheese, salt, garlic cloves, and plant milk & pulse until a ricotta texture forms. Reserve ¼ cup of this to top the pasta with, then transfer the rest into a bowl and fold in your thawed & drained spinach.
Lay out your sheet and scoop 1 tbsp of the ricotta & spinach mixture in a line, leaving about an inch between each scoop. Fold the sheet of pasta over itself to close the ravioli, and using a ravioli cutter, cut out the ravioli around each ball of ricotta.
In a food processor add your carrot, celery, onion, and garlic. Pulse until an almost paste forms.
Season with salt / pepper / chili flakes & cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add in your sausage and cook until just browned. Then add your wine and stir to deglaze the pan. Cook an additional 10 minutes.
Add in your whole tomatoes (and juices), more salt / pepper / crushed red pepper to taste, and sprigs of basil. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover for 2 hours- stirring every 15 minutes or so.
Remove the lid & add your vegan parmesan and butter. Adjust seasonings if necessary and cook for another 30 minutes.
Serve on top of your ravioli with a scoop of reserved ricotta on top, and some fresh parsley or basil & vegan parmesan if desired.
